I named my 55 prop project, the BIG BOY and in celebration of its creation and inspiration, I now post the official UP Big Boy announcement.
(there is a link to the prop project in my signature)

I do not know anything about details, (like will it run entirely on its own power, or pushed by diesel, will there be access to engine, etc)

Stoke the oil, stoak the coal! This girl runs on OIL!
The Great Race to Ogden – No. 4014

Big Boy No. 4014 will leave Cheyenne May 4 following a 9:30 a.m. MT christening ceremony at the historic Cheyenne Depot,
and arrive in Ogden for the May 9 celebratory event culminating in the Big Boy joining with The Living Legend No. 844.
The celebratory event will be streamed live May 9 at 10:30 a.m. MT via the Union Pacific Facebook page.

The Big Boy will make several brief stops in communities on its way to Ogden.
